    cracked versions can't update via store to 8.1

    btw, you need retail version, no MAK or VL

    You need to have a genuine 8 or 8.1 key to upgrade to 8.1

    if all the above comments dont work, make sure you have all updates installed and then try to update via the store. im aware they said on posts before this you cant but no harm trying. :) if that fails i spotted today on other posts there might be a iso kicking about, cant say for sure.

    my understanding is that you "cracked" it by using MTK or KMSpico, right?
    If so you are on the volume channel which does not allow upgrade via Store. You need to d/l 8.1 and upgrade by using the iso but you will loose activation
    If you cracked your system by using hacktivation, you never get to a new system because a lot of system files were distroyed
